Liam Neeson Says the Horse He Worked With Remembered Him From Previous Film

Liam Neeson surprised many people recently when he revealed that the horse he worked with on a previous film remembered him.

According to The Guardian, the actor said this at a New York Film Festival event, where he told the audience that a horse on the set of his latest movie recognised him because they had previously worked together.

“I’m saying this horse knew me,” said Neeson, who plays a travelling musician in the Coen brothers film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. “He actually remembered me from another western we made a while back … He whinnied when he saw me. And pawed the ground.

“I love animals,” the actor continued, adding, “When we worked together before I took special care of him. I fed him treats. Gave him apples.”

And this was backed by Russell Crowe who claimed he formed a similar bond with two different horses, including one he met filming Gladiator.

“There’s a horse, George, who I gave the speech in the forest in Gladiator on,” he said on Twitter. “Years later he was on the set of Robin Hood and we would have a chat every day. Same with the white horse, Rusty, in Robin Hood. We chatted again on Les Mis. Lifelong friends.”
